An experienced  helicopter test pilot, the colonel graciously  guided Reid on a tour of several helicopters.

Thank you Colonel Augustine for your service and for the tour and Ms. Celeste Washington for the tour arrangements.

For recording artist, actor, and performer Reid Soria, Autism Sings is the culmination of years spent overcoming the odds.  Diagnosed with autism at the age of 3, Reid was never expected to be able to communicate or connect with the world around him.  Now an adult, Reid has channeled his talents and sheer grit into an unprecedented story of hope.  And in finding his own voice, Reid has found a new voice for autism and is communicating and connecting beyond what was once considered possible.  Follow the story and become a part of the dream.        When words fail, Autism Sings!

--Autism Sings, 2014--
